Night Guards & Athletic Guards
Not so obvious is the need for a guard during the night. Some people have a night-time habit of grinding or clenching their teeth, sometimes putting a great deal of pressure on their natural teeth, replacement teeth and dental restorations, such as fillings and crowns. In addition, this can place too much pressure on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ or jaw joint), resulting in pain, headaches, and/or clicking noises when opening and closing the mouth.
Ready-made athletic guards may be found at sporting goods stores, but there is little that can be done in the way of adjusting the fit. Such devices can be uncomfortable and even interfere with breathing and speaking, thus discouraging an athlete from wearing the device at all. Given the importance of protecting your teeth and winning games, you might want to order a custom-made athletic guard that you will actually wear.
Custom-Made Mouth Guards
At AIMS Dentistry, we can provide you with a custom-made nightguard or athletic guard, consisting of a thin layer of molded plastic that fits snugly over your teeth, prevents the top teeth and bottom teeth from making contact, and (in the case of an athletic guard) protects you from blows to the mouth.
